Movember Mo Cap Update

Movember is in full swing, so we thought we’d drop in a pre-holiday update for those tracking our progress. Here in Mo-merica, the moustaches are coming in great and we’re destroying our European counterparts in the donation department – so our moustaches feel doubly good. Part of this event was to not only raise some money for charity, but also to build on a healthy rivalry amongst our two regions. With Mo-merica currently at $2,500, our top Mo Bro Chris F has more money than the entire European team! And they are paying in pounds with a high exchange rate… shameful!

Chris is our top Mo Bro, pictured here calling in yet another big donation. Chris is all business, all the time and of our entire Mo Bro group, he gets some extra recognition! Good job Chris!

David B
Donate to David!

Ken B
Donate to Ken and also give him some guff about not actually having a moustache!

Don’t worry Europe, you can still come back! I mean, it’s not likely and I write the blog and therefore can change history, but even against these odds, there’s still a chance!

General Bryant of Renegade Ops

General Bryant is outdoing us all in the moustache department, but as a fictional character that commands a group of badass mercs, that’s completely ok!

Luckily we’re not competing with this man, else we’d all lose and lose badly! Still more updates to come, we hope you’ve enjoyed this release and keep those donations coming in!


Movember Moment – Choose Darren’s Moustache!

As you no doubt have been reading, here at SEGA of America & SEGA of Europe, we are participating in the Movember charity – a month long effort to grow mustaches and raise money for Prostate Cancer. Here in Mo-merica, we’ve been having a lot of fun and I have to say, I’ve had some good luck in pulling some unlikely candidates into the Movember pool. One of these members is our Marketing Director, Darren Williams.

Darren is my boss’s boss. An all around great guy and usually the first to dish it out when it comes to a bit of smack talking. So through some sort of miracle, and honestly I’m not sure how I convinced him, but I’ve managed to let the INTERNET decide what moustache he’ll be sporting for Movember! Up to now, he’s gone full beard, so the there’s an open canvas to sculpt from.

Mo Voting

We have narrowed the voting down to five distinct moustache styles based on the Official Movember Style Guide. Please pick the style you want and come Tuesday next week, we’ll get started on Darren’s new look!

Help Spread the Word!

This is pretty great opportunity and something that we need to make the most of – tell your friends, your family, and let’s get the mo-st of this that we can. As always, we appreciate your donations towards the Movember cause and encourage you to donate if you can to anyone in the Renegade Ops Mo Bros Network!. Thanks and we’ll see you back here on Tuesday!


Movember Mo-Cap – Week 2!

MOVEMBER Shield 2011

Movember Day 8! We’re not even midway through the month and we’ve already received over $1,800 in total donations! An excellent first week effort with our own Chris Finch leading the charge with over $300 in total donations. Thanks to everyone who has helped by donating into the Renegade Ops Mo Bros and supporting this charity event!

While both teams have grown a collective $1,800+ in donations, SEGA of Momerica is currently has way MO donations (Mo-nations?) than the Euro SEGA Staches. As much as this is for charity, there is a bit of a competition at play between our two groups. So if anyone is thinking of joining in, I recommend sending a few extra coin to the European folks to keep things at least a bit interesting!

Why Moustaches?

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

General Bryant’s Mo Cap

Throughout the month of Movember, we’re thrilled to have photos of our own General Bryant regrowing his fabulous stache to full mo-glory. If you caught last week’s update, you’ll notice that clean shaven man was in fact the leader of the elite fighting force, the Renegades! Today we’re posting both Day 4 and Day 8 shots of General Bryant, just so you can see the progression!

The progression is almost freakish, surely even our own Ken Balough can’t grow this fast…

Sample Mo Gallery

Today, I’m going to post some photos of my own progression for the enjoyment of the internet. I’ve been tracking my progress on a semi-regular basis across my Mo-Space, as well as my personal Facebook account. Here’s a sample of the shots so far…

As you can see we’ve been having some fun with the updates! Definitely check the other updates as they come out and donate to my page!  Let it be known that I’m nowhere near General Bryant in growth potential, but what I lack in stache, I make up for in spirit and fun!

Mo to Come!

We’ve got more Movember content on the way, including more updates from the folks in our offices and our own General Bryant!
